Bakery on Suncoast

Manos Bakery Cafe

Manos Bakery Cafe
Westshore Pizza XIV, 1969 Drew St, Clearwater, FL 33765

The Kranias family has been baking European bread, pastries, cookies, cakes, and confections for three generations. Gregory Kranias opened his first bakery in 1922. Fine natural products and personal service were always the pinnacles of their success from the beginning. Grandfather Gregory grew his wheat, had it ground in the local grist mill, and then baked the bread in wood-burning brick ovens. Once the day’s baking was complete, Grandfather Gregory would place the bread and pastries in baskets and deliver them door-to-door in his donkey-drawn cart.

That tradition continued with his son Yanni until mid-1970. From 1970 on, they modernized the operation but maintained the tradition of exceptional service and fine quality. Today the bakeries in Greece are still managed by Yanni, his wife Mary, and sons Gregory and Vasilios as bakers and fine pastry chefs. Emanuil (Manos), Yanni’s second son, emigrated to the US and continued the family tradition. He opened Sweet Bread Co. in South Tampa before opening Manos Bakery Cafe in Clearwater.

Speaks Clam Bar

Speaks Clam Bar

Speaks Clam Bar
8764 E State Road 70 Bradenton, FL 34202

At the turn of the 19th century, New York’s Little Italy saw the first of many Italian clam bars. These clam bars all had one thing in common. It was all about the sauce. Guests would choose a sweet, medium, or hot sauce to complement their Italian favorites. And for many years, guys and dolls enjoyed their Italian dishes with some fine hooch. Unfortunately, during Prohibition, fans of clam bars would have to jump to a juice joint to wet their whistles.

For generations, the owner’s family lived in New York and experienced firsthand the journey of the Italian clam bars. They still have great memories of getting spiffy and visiting the local clam bar. They always thought it would’ve been the cat’s pajamas to walk thru the door of an Italian clam bar on the day Prohibition ended. In creating Speaks Clam Bar, they did just that where the finest Italian meals in the great clam bar tradition are enjoyed in the fun-loving spirit of the speakeasy. Perfect for a swell time with your family and friends.

Mon – Thurs, 11 am-10 pm
Fri – Sat, 11 am – 11 pm
Sun, 12 pm – 10 pm
